Started using the single ring shown by Griz. I know the rings add weight but the cordage doesn't double back and weight albeit very little is saved there. I've just found the ring method versatile.
I haven't weighed either system.
I love my whoopies and the Dutch clips on my tree straps with the marlin spike hitch. Light and simple.
"I love not man the less, but Nature more."
Was using whoopies for a bit, but now going back to full webbing. It weighs a bit more but I prefer the range of adjustability with webbing.
Check out what I just learned
im partial to whoppies myself, but i wouldn't mind trying cinch buckles
Tree straps marlinspike hitch. Spyderline using a buntline hitch knot.
Harbor Freight 1" wide 12' long (same as Mad777 is refering to above) yellow straps with an Elephant Trunk and Dynaglide dogbone. I don't really like whoopies anymore.

Am I the only one who uses the trucker's hitch to make the loop to go around the MSH?
Mine is tree straps with dutch clips to whoopies using a marlin spike and toggles. Quick and easy to set up and much lighter than the standard webbing my hammock came with.
